Some key points in the way we handle data;

  • We hold contact information for businesses in the New Forest area, which we draw upon to display on this website
  • This information has been supplied by those businesses over the past 20 years
  • We contacted the businesses on our database in 2011 to check the details were accurate and ask whether they were happy to be displayed on this website
  • All businesses that have been added since then have been done so by the business themselves, knowing that their basic information would be displayed on this website, and have had the option to opt-in to receive New Forest Online emails
  • We will occasionally send emails to some of the contacts on our database for our own promotional purposes only
  • We will not display any personal names on this website unless they are also the business name
  • We will never pass our data to a third party
  • We do not request or hold any credit or payment card details for the business listed nor will we ever request them
